in reply to How I Learned About Quines

Mostly unrelated, but I'd like to share the story with you nonetheless:

The other day I discussed quine zip archives with friends shortly before I went to bed. Then I dreamt that my sister made me a belated Christmas present, which consisted of a book (Flemish for beginners :-) and a model of a quine building.

In my dream that was a tower that was open at one side, and if you looked into the cupola you saw another building, which in turn contained the tower again - in full size. I was very happy about such a geeky present.

When I gradually woke up I realized more and more that such a thing can't really exist in our 3D real world, and was a bit disappointed. Still a rather nice and geeky dream :-)
